    How many people start conversations with me with the question, "Have any eggs yet"?!?

    My girls are 6-7+ months old and no eggs.

    DBF and I have given up. We expect no eggs (and hope *that* will mean we'll get eggs!).

    ----------------------

    UPDATE 11/22

    DBF came into the hosue looking very proud today. Our BSL squatted for him! I'm torn between being excited & jealous. I am, after all, the one who takes care of the moochers!

    i feel your pain - we went for months with people making fun of us as we had no eggs yet - we are getting 3-4 a day now and i think we have had the last laugh [​IMG]

    hope they will lay for you soon!
